How do you know if your women’s ministry is effective?
If you needed to prove the women’s ministry in your church makes a difference, could you easily do so?
Is your women’s ministry in good health?
How do we go about making an assessment that honors the Lord and isn’t a mathematical equation?
Proverbs 14:8a gives us a Biblical basis for assessment. “The wisdom of the prudent is to discern his way.”
I think most of us would agree that in God’s economy, numbers are not the ultimate decision makers.
The first shall be last.
Narrow is the path.
Rather than pulling out our calculators and creating a spreadsheet, let’s dig deeper.
We need to assess the growth and development of our team and our women.
Tips for administering the women’s ministry health assessment:
- Set aside time at your next women’s ministry team meeting to complete this assessment.
- Consider breaking the team into pairs to answer the questions together and then sharing your answers with the whole group.
- You may want to email the questions in advance, suggesting your team member’s jot down a few ideas before the meeting.
- If you’re feeling brave, ask your staff leadership to complete the assessment too and compare your answers.
- Take great care to accept any and all answers you receive ESPECIALLY if you don’t agree. Our perspective is often biased and we don’t always see things as others do.
- Rather than yes or no answers, encourage the team to answer the questions with specific examples highlighting how and why.

7 Areas to Assess the Health of Your Women’s Ministry
- Spiritual Growth
Each section contains detailed questions to help you and your team accurately assess the health of each area.
You’ll assign each area a point value and then will add all seven together to determine your ministry’s overall health.
I pray as you complete this task God will open your eyes to see where your team is excelling and where there is room for improvement.
Take this opportunity to see the bigger picture and fuel change where it is needed.
I encourage you to consider making this assessment an annual process, always working toward creating a healthier ministry.
